Nova radio host joins Fast5 fun

Fast5 Netball in South Australia just got more exciting with the news that Nova radio host, Jarrod Walsh, will join Adelaide Thunderbird Kate Shimmin as an ambassador for Fast5 in SA.

Jarrod, who netball fans would have heard on Nova and seen emceeing at Australian Diamonds games in Adelaide, said the fact that everyone can play Fast5, from newbies to those playing the traditional game for years, enticed him to become an ambassador.

“Anyone can play Fast5,” he said. “I am starting to stretch my long legs, prepare my stance and am at the ready to dominate in GA. Let the games begin.”

Jarrod said netball and sport have played a huge part in his life.

“My family has been involved in netball my whole life, and I’ve certainly watched a lot of matches where my mum and sisters have played.

“Now it’s my turn to get on the court in this new innovative game.

“Innovations in sport that are exciting and provide an opportunity to attract new participants are essential. Fast5 Netball ticks all of these boxes and it’s an absolute honour to be involved.”
